Last week in my Venison & Ramp Stir-Fry post, I talked about “letting my freak flag fly” more often and posting more of my real-life culinary creations utilizing fresh foraged/wild/local/seasonal foods. And I’ve definitely stuck to my word!

Ramps are a wild onion/leek/garlic flavored allium that grows with abundance in our local area (Pennsylvania/West Virginia) and we enjoy incorporating into as many meals as possible while they are in season, like in this Wild Leek Dressing Recipe.

Want to learn more about Ramps? Check out my What to Forage for in April post.

Ramps are notoriously pungent, so a little goes a long way! Don’t feel like you need a bushel of ramps to whip up delicious recipes, just a bunch will yield several recipes.

The whole ramp is edible and delicious (except the roots) Leaves, Stems and Bulbs can all be used in place of onions, leeks, garlic, shallots in your favorite recipes.

But don’t worry if you don’t have ramp patch to dig your own, they are becoming more readily available at farmer’s markets and gourmet groceries, too!

There are even places that have West Virginia Ramps for sale and will ship them directly to you!

How to Make Ramp Salad Dressing?

Making a salad dressing with wild leeks is so easy! Simply blend ramps, oil, vinegar and seasonings with a blender until smooth!

It can’t get much easier or delicious!

This Ramp Salad Dressing is great on a salad of fresh spring greens, recently I paired it with fresh leaf lettuce, mandarin oranges segments, pungent blue cheese, walnuts and raw ramps – DELICIOUS!
